Grief can completely overwhelm us
Whereas grief is a normal process, it can still be devastating when we have to face the death of a loved one.
We are here to support you through this time.
If you are facing the death of a loved one or coming to terms with a terminal diagnosis, you do not have to face that alone.
Hope Therapy’s Bereavement Team have experience of all types of loss and can support you whenever and however death occurred or the diagnosis was received.
To ensure that you are fully supported, all of our bereavement team are experienced counsellors, who have received specialist training in bereavement and loss.
Death of a Parent: We can often have highly complex relationships with our parents, which are capable of generating challenging and possibly unexpected emotions when they die.
Death of a Loved One: The relationship we have with our loved ones are unique and as such the way in which make sense of them passing will be equally unique. For many that can bring its own unique challenges, in ways that we may often find ourselves completely unprepared for.
Coping with a Diagnosis: We understand that a Terminal Diagnosis, either ourselves or someone we care about, can be devastating for all concerned.
Is Grief Normal?
Grief is a normal and natural part of life. But that doesn’t mean that it can’t be painful and often devastating.
Grief can affect our thoughts, emotions and bodies in ways that are unexpected and often overwhelming.
- Some people describe being emotionally numb.
- Not sleeping.
- Others are confronted with emotions that are painful and often unexpected.
- Maybe you can’t eat.
- Or can’t stop crying.
There is no right way to grieve.

You will not regret it!
I first went to Ian in 2018 following a bereavement, and it is an understatement to say that Ian has helped me so much. I have had therapists in the past, but never have I had one that made me feel instantly comfortable, and in a position where I could trust and explore my most vulnerable self in such a safe setting. With Ian’s help, I have really modified my behaviour, and for the first time in my life, I can say that I am truly content with my life, and I am able to face life’s ups and downs without getting overwhelmed as I once used to. I cannot recommend Ian enough, he is a brilliant therapist, and a wonderful person through and through. You will not regret it!
